Permaculture Weekend Course at Crystal Waters Eco-Village. A Photographic Recount

Have a look at this great document that Rumi put together after attending and supporting me with my ‘Permaculture  Meets Creative Design’ Weekend back in August. Rumi (Rut Noemi Nicolau Ordinas) is from Spain and has been WHISPing (my version of WWOOFing – Willing Helpers in Special Places) with me since May. This is her recount of the workshop and it has great photos and active sequences of Sheet Mulch Gardening, Hot Composting, Small Garden Design with instructions so people can re-create these for themselves and a few other interesting bits of information. http://dynamicgroups.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Permaculture-Weekend-Rumi-Report-2012.pdf
